a couple hundred people still in their homes on the bay side of the city. the governor said it's a situation they will have to monitor and first thing in the morning at first light respond to and try to get those people out. not far from here just a couple blocks, one of the city's last resort shelters a guard unit went in there and pulled those people out and took them to atlantic city high school. so the shelters that were kept if place drawing criticism. chris christie's statement was there shouldn't have been shelters open here on the island. the winds are still coming ashore here. and we really won't know what kind of damage has taken place inside the city proper. i'm chris kato reporting for wcau. >> what he was explaining was cutting out of some of the time because we have a live shot in the middle of the storm about the controversy over those shelters. the the contrast is between the wishes of the local mayor and the wishes of the governor. governor chris christie saying there should not have been any sheltering in place on site in atlantic city that everybody should ha
gusts but this is the first time probably in about 12 hours we don't have any locations on here above 55 or near 60. atlantic city is the highest there at 52. so good signs that winds are slowly beginning to drop down. we're in the 40 and 30 range throughout the delmarva, d.c. washington, d.c., by the way, you had a windy late night. you had some gusts up to 60 miles per hour which caught some people by surprise. further to the north in new england, finally the winds are dying off there, too. we shouldn't see too much more damage. the concern i have overnight besides additional winds is the heavy snow through areas of west virginia, pennsylvania, and also through areas of extreme mountainous maryland. chris, it's going to snow another 1 to 2 feet on top of the foot that is already on the ground. people are already stuck in numerous locations because of that heavy snow and downed trees. so just a multifaceted historic storm. the name sandy is almost guaranteed to be retired by the national hurricane center. i'm sure this will be a multibillion dollar storm damage. we probably had close to
. literally lift it up off the ground. and we have to think of our cities very differently than we thought about in the past. parking lot underneath -- the first four or eight stories of buildings may not be the prettiest thing to look at, but better you lose a parking lot than a bunch of apartments or business units. we're going to have to think about making our infrastructure more protectable. this thing in new york is absolutely the example. our problems with metro north are absolutely the example. we'll have to harden systems and spend money on those systems. even while we're spending money to repair those systems. there's a bigger question. in a country where people don't like to talk about infrastructure investment, at least half the people in the country don't like to talk about infrastructure investment, how are we going to e get it done? e we need leadership that doesn't talk about europe and china and then not expect to repeat it here in the united states. we need to rebuild our infrastructure. we need to harden our infrastructure. we need to protect that infrastructure. and we n
smith was not the first catholic president but he was the first catholic nominee for president. this dinner, which is a benefit for catholic charities here in new york city, has ended up becoming a really important thing in american presidential politics. honestly, the biggest reason it is really important is because of its timing. there are other dinners like this. the gridiron dinner in washington or the alfalfa dinner or the correspondence dinner. there are other dinners that are fancy politics proms, essentially. where you get a sitting president or very high-level politician showing up in tuxedos and gowns and telling jokes and sharing stages with people they otherwise would not be sharing stages with. that happens. right? there are those events in washington and elsewhere around the country. but this one that you are looking at right here is different. because this one happens now. a couple of weeks before the election. and it's always timed like that. every time. and traditionally, both presidential candidates go to these things. i mean, there are some years where the di
to think of our cities very differently than we thought about them in the past. you know, parking lots underneath -- you know, the first four, eight stories of buildings being parking lots may not be the prettiest thing to look at, but, but better you lose a parking lot than you lose a whole bunch of apartments or a whole bunch of business units. we're going to have to think about making our infrastructure more protectable. i mean this thing in new york is absolutely the example. our problems with metro north are absolutely the example so we'll have to harden systems and have to spend money on hardening those systems, even while we're spending money to repair those systems. now, of course, there is a bigger question. in a country where people don't like to talk about infrastructure investment, at least half the people in the country don't like to talk about infrastructure investment, how are we going to get this thing done? we'll need leadership in the country that actually doesn't simply talk about europe or china's investment in awe and then not expect to repeat it here in the united
in new york city just a couple weeks ago. now glen beck is doing a gala fund-raiser with dick cheney with 12 days to go before the election. i can't -- >> first of all, the glenn beck thing, to me, suggests he's still trying to win over the base of the republican party. or the craziest part of the base. but as you indicated, he's trying, romney is trying to hide his real positions, have this mask of moderation. he's running a pseudo pro-choice. i don't even want to dignify it with that label. ad. and so, and he's trying to, you know, put mourdock in the closet with akin. and, yet, it's all undone by appearance by glenn beck or donald trump. at the same time, on the foreign policy front, after presenting himself in the last debate as a peace nick, who said, i don't want to have another iraq or afghanistan. you know, he took back every single position -- this is, of course, what colin powell was alluding to -- to be involved with dick cheney, completely undoes that. dick cheney is the foreign policy who supposedly disowning last week. >> that's why i feel like this is important because
